Joan Dachs Bais Yaakov – Yeshivas Tiferes Tzvi was founded 70 years ago and has grown to be the largest Jewish Elementary Day School in the Midwest, currently serving close to 1500 students in nursery through eighth grade. JDBY-YTT is dedicated to transmitting the values and life style of Orthodox Jewish tradition while providing a strong, comprehensive secular education. As a Jewish parochial school, our goal is to provide a learning environment in which children acquire skills and knowledge in all secular subjects in an environment based on Torah, mitzvos, tzedakah, and limud. We recognize and respect the dignity of all students, and strive to maximize individual strengths and achievements in a positive, supportive learning environment.
The mission of our school is to help children grow academically, emotionally, and socially, while guiding our students toward simchas hachaim (happiness in life) and personal self esteem. We promote integrity, responsibility and academic excellence, all cornerstones of chinuch. Ultimately our goal is to educate children so that they have high moral and ethical values, religious and secular knowledge, and become active, contributing members of the communities they join.
